4 More Archivals in Bluefin Tuna
The weather has been good the past two days- and the TAG team has
been pushing slowly but surely forward- we caught our own fish on Wednesday
and tagged three more by transferring. The archivals are set up to record data
for up to five years- so hopefully one day- we'll see where these fish go- 5 years
from now- DNA samples and a sponge that can pick up mucous that helps us determine
gender are all part of the TAG arsenal of tactics to learn more about these fish.
Keep up the tagging team!
